FREE! Youth Day at Duntroon Highlands Golf

Wednesday, July 5, 2023

USE THE RSVP FORMS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE TO REGISTER!

A Musical Adventure

This year we are once again hosting an entire day of FREE activities for youth at Ontario’s premier golf course. Its breathtaking views of South Georgian Bay, dramatic landscape features and relaxed atmosphere have made it a favourite place for locals and visitors to experience the fun and freedom of being outdoors.

Participants can stroll through the breathtaking grounds and explore musical ‘stations’ equipped with ready-to-play instruments. These musical instruments are made of recycled materials such as wood, metal, rock, steel, plastic and are designed to be played ‘unplugged’ by both children and adults at their leisure.

Come and enjoy the serenity of nature and uncover your inner musician, inspired by the sounds of the wind, water and birds!

Here is a timeline for all of the youth & family events scheduled to take place at the Duntroon Highlands House.

Philosophy

L.E.A.D. (Listen, Empathize, Act, Drive) is a concept developed by Marilyn Field, the education visionary and founder of YouthLEADArts. The activities are designed to focus on one’s inner-awareness, while using the elevating power of music as a critical component of the environment.
